1/14/2022  FOR SALE NEW set of Kappa replacement sails (Main & Jib) for a Blue Jay with bags. Picture shows the sails on an O'Day. $500. Located in East Haddam, CT Contact: Rodney at
10/6/2021  LOOKING FOR: Looking for clues about my old Blue Jays: My first boat was a wooden 1958 Gerber boat, #1348, built on City Island. Next was a fiberglass 1969 Saybrook, #5301. I sailed them when I was a junior at Larchmont in the late '60s / early '70s and lost track of both of them many years ago. I'd be delighted to discover where they wound up. I don't have much hope that the wooden boat made it 60+ years but I'd like to think the glass boat might still be around. Thanks in advance for any ideas. Contact Tom at

4/1/2021  FREE Modified Blue Jay; It spent it’s life on Long Island, but is now located in Greenwood Lake, NY in Orange County. It’s a fiberglass hull in need of cosmetics, hardware upgrades/replacement, and general TLC. Mast, boom, rudder, and sails (jib, main, not sure if there is a spinnaker) included. It does NOT have a foredeck, but rather has an open hull plan like a dory; I've not seen any pictures of one like it, though the hull shape and dimensions all seem like a Blue Jay. No year, manufacturer, or sail number. Contact Walter

11/19/17 For Sale: 2000 Blue Jay, hull 7202. Very good condition. This is probably one of the newer ones made. It is all fiberglass with no wood. Comes with Spinnaker and all the typical accessories+ a trailer. Originally bought from Charles Dufresne of Greenwich CT several months ago. He failed to mention some issues. I had to reseal the top of the centerboard housing, clean the sails and fix part of the trailer. I have tested it 4 times to make sure it is solid. It sails well however It is a trainer boat for teens and a daysailer for 2 adults. I was looking something with higher performance like a Lightning which is far more expensive. It's an attractive and classic boat that will teach you how to sail. $1900. Contact Peter at 703 861 0289 evenings. I'm in Northern VA and travel to NY periodically.
